The story takes a lighthearted look at a serious issue- addiction. I laughed out loud so many times listening to this ! The narrator does a great job of all the different voices too.

Brilliant! Couldn’t stop listening .

The Testaments is really compelling and the narrators are all excellent. The book gives a terrifying view into Gilead 30 years after the events in The Handmaid’s tale. I didn’t expect Aunt Lydia as one of the protagonists ,and was torn between horror and fascination at her story. The other characters are equally fascinating. One of the best audio books I’ve listened to.

Despite the interesting historical period, this story is boring. The main character is simply an observer. Descriptions of locations bring them to life , whereas the characters remain dull . Frequently repeated phrases ( ‘ she bobbed a curtsy ‘) add to the tedium .
